Kendrick Lamar reigned supreme last night at the BET Hip-Hop Awards! Despite the stiff competition against Kanye West, Drake, J. Cole and Chance the Rapper, Kendrick was crowned “Lyricist of the Year.” As he accepted the coveted award, Kendrick emphasized the importance of unity through music.
“All glory to God. This award right here, right now, mean more than anything. With that being said, I promise you this: as long as you keep music in your heart, in your soul, no matter what type of style, flow, beat, or creativity, I guarantee you, it’s one of those things that will always bring us together in this room. We right here for a reason, because of music.”
